On Tuesday, the 2015 Major League Baseball First Year Player Draft resumed. I’ll take you through the nine men the Cardinals drafted in rounds 3-10, listed in order.
1. Harrison Bader- Outfielder
2. Jordan Hicks- Pitcher
3. Paul DeJong- Third Baseman
4. Ryan Helsley- Pitcher
5. Jacob Evans- Pitcher
Jacob Evans is a left handed pitcher from the University of Oakland. In his sixty college games, Jacob had a 3.71 earned run average. Over the 126 innings he pitched, he struck out 115 batters.
6. Jesse Jenner- Catcher
Jesse is a catcher from the University of San Diego. In his 2015 season, he batted .314 and had 27 RBI. Arguably what stands out most with him is his defense. The .995 fielding percentage he posted will help you win any argument.
7. Ian Oxnevad- Pitcher
8. Andrew Brodbeck- Second Baseman
Andrew is a middle infielder from Flagler College. In his college offense tenure, he has batted .346 with eighty-two RBI. My favorite statistic on him is his stolen base percentage. He has tried stealing fifty times in his career and has only been caught nine times, good enough for an 82% stealing- success rate.
9. Kep Brown- Outfielder
Kep is an outfielder from Wando High School. His 2015 season was cut short, unfortunately, when he tore his achilles tendon in early April. In the thirteen games he did play, he batted .517 with an astronomical OPS of 1.548. In the early stretch, he also hit two long balls and drove in eight.
